Today, we'll design a lab where we'll use physics from several past units to investigate car crashes.  Your goal today is to come up with the mathematical model that will help us find the coefficient of friction between two surfaces.  You've done this two other ways before, and this time,  you'll design a third method using limited resources.  

SEE GOOGLE CLASSROOM FOR FULL DETAILS ON THE LAB.

Homework: If you have not finished your mathematical model with your lab group, do that tonight so that you can perform the experiment and take data next class.  Remember that you must have all of your work and your data written by hand INDIVIDUALLY!  Write up individually up to the mathematical model due next class.
